At age 96, St Joseph’s Health Centre on October 3, 2022.
Loved and will be deeply missed by her children: Janet, Nancy (Mike Peng), Karen (Jim Kobayashi) and grandchildren Bryan, Kevin (Cindy).
Predeceased by her husband Takeo Yamada and sister Dorothy Kagawa. Mary was born in Vancouver, BC and after WWII, relocated to Toronto. She was an elementary school teacher in Toronto and enjoyed travelling, pottery, sumi-e painting and spending time with friends and family.
Our family extends gratitude to the health care team at St Joseph’s Health Centre and Runnymede Health Centre for their support and compassionate care.
In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Joseph’s Health Centre (Toronto) or the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, would be greatly appreciated.
